Marshall hints at close return to mound

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - One of the Reds top bullpen arms could be close to rejoining the team.

Sean Marshall, who last pitched in May because of a strained throwing shoulder, threw 23 pitches off the Great American Ball Park mound Tuesday in a simulated game.

"Felt good, felt strong.  Felt like all the work I've put in so far is paying off, " Marshall said.  "I feel as close to game ready now as I've been in a long time."

Marshall said he threw all of his pitches, including sliders and curveballs, and tried to treat the session as close to a game as he could.

"(I) envisioned myself warming up with people in the crowd and pitching at game speed.  I'm really happy about it."

Dusty Baker said he watched Tuesday's session and focused on Marshall's facial expressions.  Baker said he was looking to see if Marshall showed any signs of pain, but didn't see any.

Marshall said he's confident he can be ready before the end of the season.
